WWE SmackDown Live Results: Highlights, Analysis, and Grades for April 11

1 of 8

Follow along with our review of Tuesday’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live.

Last week, Shinsuke Nakamura shocked the world when he made his debut on SmackDown Live. His ascension came at the perfect time, as his star power will lessen the impact of John Cena’s absence.

By retaining her Women’s Championship against Alexa Bliss, Naomi established herself as a worthy champion. With the rosters reshuffling, who will we see challenge her for the belt next?

The Superstar Shake-Up only just began, and SmackDown Live has already been dealt a fatal blow. Several top talents have made the transition to Monday Night Raw, leaving the Blue Brand with a paper-thin roster. Without stars such as Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, and The Miz to carry the banner, who will step up and seize the opportunity?

Since winning the Tag Team Titles, the Usos haven’t been present nearly as often as they should be. That’s set to change tonight, as the champions will be defending the gold against American Alpha in a rematch from their previous encounter.

Another SmackDown Live debut that occurred last week was the emergence of Tye Dillinger. As one of the most popular stars on NXT, he carved a name for himself as a solid competitor. Should this trend continue, he will easily become one of the top stars on the Blue Brand.
